Like most Connecticut communities, Wallingford has been the home of a large number of natives of Ireland and people of Irish descent. Settled in 1670, the town attracted Irish immigrants with employment opportunities in industry, transportation and domestic service. This issue of The Shanachie features the stories of just two of the many Irish of Wallingford.
